Steelers' Morgan Burnett: Heading to Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Steelers and Burnett agreed to a three-year contract Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Burnett's eight-year run with the Packers included three 100-tackle campaigns, nine interceptions, eight forced fumbles and 7.5 sacks. Generally, he provided a steady hand at strong safety, but injuries also beset him from time to time, as he suited up for only 102 of a possible 128 regular-season contests. Upon joining the Steelers, he'll line up next to third-year safety Sean Davis within a defense that ranked fifth in terms of yards allowed and seventh in points conceded in 2017.

Morgan Burnett: Finalizing deal with Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett is flying to Pittsburgh on Tuesday to finalize a contract with the Steelers, James Jones of NFL Network reports.

The Steelers have an opening at strong safety after releasing 2017 starter Mike Mitchell last week. The 29-year-old Burnett would be a clear upgrade, capable of playing linebacker or slot corner in the nickel/dime, in addition to serving as a traditional strong safety in the base defense. He's one of the top tackle compilers among defensive backs, averaging 6.8 in 102 career games. Health has been the only real concern, with Burnett missing at least one game (but no more than five) each of the past five seasons.

Packers' Morgan Burnett: Cannot match 2016 production
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett made 68 tackles (48 solo) and forced a fumble over 12 games during the 2017 season.

Burnett put up quality numbers for fantasy players in 2016. but he failed to register anything in the sack or interception departments and saw his tackle total take a big drop while battling injuries. A free agent in the offseason, it remains to be seen if Burnett will return to the Packers, or head elsewhere after eight seasons in Green Bay.

Packers' Morgan Burnett: Active vs. Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burnett (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Burnett was tagged as questionable heading into Sunday's contest, but given that he was a full participant in practice this week, there was never much doubt surrounding the defensive back's status. Burnett and the Packers' secondary have their hands full Sunday night against the explosive Pittsburgh offense.
